Highlights

 
  • Summit one of the most iconic mountains in Switzerland.

  • Enjoy stunning views all along the ridge line and from the top.

  • Get great views out over Monch and Jungfrau.

 

Towering 3.867 meters above sea level, Eiger is perhaps the most famous mountaineering destination in the Bernese Oberland.

Over the course of two days, we will climb this iconic Swiss peak via the popular Mittellegi Ridge, enjoying a quintessential alpine experience and taking in some incredible views along the way.

After meeting up in the nearby town of Grindelwald, we will take the train to Eismeer station and begin a three to four-hour scrambling and climbing ascent to the Mittellegihut, in which we will spend the night.

The next day is summit day, so after getting an early start, we will begin our four-hour climb to the summit along the exposed and narrow Mittellegi Ridge.

This climb is rated at UIAA 3+ and requires a combination of pitched-out climbing and scrambling in order to reach the summit. Previous ridge line climbing is required for this trip.

Making a smaller ascent before this trip in order to acclimatize is also recommended.

However, once you reach the top, the views out over the mountains, glaciers and valleys of the Bernese Oberland are stunning. All the effort required to get to the tops is paid back handsomely with these unbelievable views.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this challenging but amazing 2-day ascent of Eiger via the Mittellegi Ridge!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my 2-day mountaineering expedition to the summit of the Matterhorn!

About the Guide

 
 

Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.

One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.

What People are Saying about Daniel Toferer

 

very good guide, wonderful experience

Daniel made our two day guided ascent to the summit of Großglockner an incredible and unforgettable experience. Daniel provided us with quality gear and kept us well informed throughout the whole expedition in terms of the route, weather conditions and safety precautions. Daniel’s communication skills were fantastic and he spoke perfect English. We were very thankful that Daniel gave us a second attempt at the summit after having to turn back on our first attempt due to bad weather (Daniel’s judgement of the conditions was great and we had full confidence in his decision to turn back to ensure safety). The summit was absolutely amazing and we had a lot of fun and good laughs with Daniel. We hope we can book Daniel for another trip soon, Danke!!

Daniel guided us safely to Matterhorn summit via Hörnli Ridge. We visited Swiss and Italian summits and then headed back to Hörnli Hut. In very good conditions this whole trip took us just approx. 8 hours. Daniel is a very strong and skilled climber – he knows the route, gives good insight on how to climb each section and is continuously aware during short roping to prevent a possible slip. Just understand that Matterhorn climb is a very intense effort - there\'s not awfully lot of time for taking photos, admiring the views or relaxing during the climb.
